With Your New AM Advantage
Intended for AM use ONLY. Most receivers and radios
have external AM antenna terminals. If your receiver or
radio does NOT have these terminals, you cannot connect
the antenna and it must be used in Wireless Operation
(see Wireless Operation on the following page).
AM Advantage Hook-Up & Tuning:
Your new AM Advantage can improve your AM
1. Connect the supplied wire’s jack into the port located
on the back of the antenna. See Figure 1.
2. Locate the set of terminals for an external AM antenna
on the back of your radio or receiver. (These terminals
can be either two screws or two push-buttons.)
3. Simply insert the exposed wire leads into the
terminals. See Figure 2.
4. Tune in the AM station you wish to listen to on your radio.
5. Turn the dial on the AM Advantage to approximately
the same frequency. Improved reception performance
should be noted. See Figure 3.
For Wireless Operation
The AM Advantage can also be used to improve AM
reception with clock radios, kitchen radios, boom boxes,
or any AM radio that already has a built-in AM antenna.
Simply place the AM Advantage next to your radio, then
tune the antenna until the reception becomes clearer. Try
placing the antenna near all four sides of your radio until
the best results are achieved.

Locating Your AM Advantage
For Best Results
1. All antennas are affected by electromagnetic
fields. To maximize performance, position your
AM Advantage antenna away from direct contact
with CD players, TVs and computers.
Note: Antennas work best when CD players, VCRs
and computers are turned off.
2. Keep the antenna away from large metal objects.
Placing the AM Advantage near a window often
provides the best results.
3. On occasion, certain areas in your home may be
null points or dead spots where no radio signal can
be received. This may also occur in metal-frame
buildings and houses with aluminum siding. In this
case, simply move your antenna, trying different
locations, until the best reception is achieved.
4. In weak signal areas, optimum tuning is achieved
with your receiver’s scan button in the off position.
About Your AM Advantage
Remember that no antenna can receive a radio signal that
isn’t there. When a usable radio signal is present, your
AM Advantage will improve AM reception.
Note: Generally, a practical limit to radio reception is
40-50 miles from the broadcast transmitter depending
on the terrain.
Q: Which wire on the AM portion of the antenna is the ground wire?
A: Either wire can be used as the ground.
Q: When I touch the antenna, it works better. How come?
A: When you touch the antenna, and your feet are touching
the ground, you are acting as a giant antenna. You can
only accurately judge how the antenna is working when
you let it go.
